The Hits Just Keep on Comin'!

November 5th, 2012 at 04:38 am

The other day, my wife had a dentist appointment. I was scheduled for that day as well, but I thought it more important for me to work that day instead, since I had missed a full day earlier that week when we were driving back home from our trip.

My wife drove herself there, and we had someone watch our kiddo. As she was backing out, she (according to her telling of the event) didn't know which way to go, as the car was parked so close to the pillar that our space is situated next to. So, not knowing which way to back out, she backed out straight, she says. Haha. I guess the mirror was on the same plane as the pillar, as it crashed against the pillar and snapped off.

If you recall, this is now the fifth time that we have busted a mirror on this car. Man, this vehicle has been through hell and back!

A new mirror is $26. However, I could get folding ones for $70 for a pair. I am not sure what to do, as our Emergency Fund is currently down to $336 since all the other stuff happened.

    Or you could move somewhere that you don't have to park anywhere near a mirror-killing pillar. Wink

    I'd go for the least expensive option, but since it seems a habit, I can see where the folding mirror seems appealing.

    You might look for a used mirror at a junk yard...if it cost less and doesn't match it would be a better deal.

    The $70 pair are used. Typically, they are $70 each for the folding ones. And they are pretty rare. They only come on the sport models of our car of years 2005-2007, and those cars weren't made in high numbers.

    Humph. Ha.
